You will need to push in the reset button with a paper clip. The reset button is on the back of the router near one of the antenna.
here are the proper instructions:

Change password


when i think of routers to passwords come to mind:
the administrative username and password
the wireless name (SSID) and wireless password

if you don't know the admin stuff you will need to set the router to factory defaults before you can do anything. its easy use something to push the reset button for 12 seconds. login by going to routerlogin.net or 192.168.1.1 and enter the default admin stuff "admin" and "password".

now to change the admin password (so other people can't mess with your router) go to the admin tab.
to re-setup your wireless go to the wireless tab

hopefully something i said answers your question

I have got a 2nd laptop and cant remenber my password to connect it to my wireless connection


If yuor first laptop is able to connect then try installing SIW on it and click the PASSWORDS link to see if it will retrieve the wireless password off the first laptop.
If not, and you cannot get into the router either, you will need to reset the netgear to factory by depressing the reset button in the back for 10 seconds, which resets the login to 'admin' and the password to 'password' to allow access to the router, and setting the wireless security to NONE - allowing you to change it to something you can remember.

If you are able to get into the router, but simply cannot remember the wireless password, you can reset it to something else without resetting the router through the wireless security menu in the router. You will need to then set both laptops to use the new password.

I have forgotten my username and password for 192.168.1.1 and i want my router to be password protected so my neighbours dont mess with it


Reset the router ..
To reset the router using the reset button, use these steps:
  1. Look for the red reset button at the back of the router.
  2. Press and hold the reset button for approximately 5 seconds
Linksys sets the default to 192.168.1.1 (http://192.168.1.1/
you will be asked for your credentials, leave the username blank and enter "admin" for the password

My Dell 2350 router was working fine and was password protected. I must have messed up the settings because now it is no longer password protected (I can tell because the padlock next to it is now gone.)...


Hey!

Looks like someone pressed the reset button on your router which caused it to go back to it's factory settings that's why you lost the password.

Click here for the user manual regarding network security setup for your Dell Wireless Router.

Hope this helps! :D

I lost my password and lost the WGT624 installation CD, how can i get the router to work on a new laptop


If you have lost the password to access the router page then you have to reset the router

Ensure that you have all the details regarding your internet connection before resetting the router

If you reset the router you can run the smart setup wizard and get connected by entering correct information in all the pages of the wizard

If you are looking for the wireless password:
--------------------------------------------------------------
Access your router page ( Open Internet Explorer --> Type 192.168.1.1 and enter it--> Login name(default)-admin, Password(default)-password) --> GO to wireless settings,under Wireless settings you will find the wireless password.

I want to install HG510 provied by mtnl


You have to take a pen and hit the reset button, and hold in on it for about thirty seconds to minute. Be sure to re-secure your wireless internet after that, so your neighbors can't use it, by using a personal password. It is located under basic wireless setup on the router page. 192.168.1.100 is the default after the reset of linksys been pressed.

Installation cd missing for wireless router


You do not need the disk

While it is powered up look for the reset button on the back and put a pencil or other non-metallic onto the button and hold it in for 10 seconds

It will reset and set the username to "admin" and the password to "password" or "admin"

If this does not work do not put in a username but enter "admin" for the password

You can then use the setup wizard to connect the internet broadband
